Stop HLS - React

Stopping HLS refers to the process of halting the ongoing HLS stream transmission, indicating that the stream is no longer accessible to viewers.

Stopping HLS

The stopHls() method, accesible from the useMeeting hook, is used to stop the interactive livestream of a meeting.

Example

import { useMeeting } from "@videosdk.live/react-sdk";

const MeetingView = () => {
const { stopHls } = useMeeting();

const handleStopHls = () => {
// Stop Hls
stopHls();
};

return (
<>
<button onClick={handleStopHls}>Stop Hls</button>
</>
);
};

Event associated with HLS

  • onHlsStateChanged - The onHlsStateChanged() event is triggered whenever the state of meeting HLS changes.

  • You will get HLS_STOPPING and HLS_STOPPED status on calling stopHls().

import { Constants, useMeeting } from "@videosdk.live/react-sdk";

function onHlsStateChanged(data) {
const { status } = data;

if (status === Constants.hlsEvents.HLS_STARTING) {
console.log("Meeting Hls is starting");
} else if (status === Constants.hlsEvents.HLS_STARTED) {
console.log("Meeting Hls is started");
} else if (status === Constants.hlsEvents.HLS_PLAYABLE) {
// on hlsStateChanged started you will receive downstreamUrl
const { downstreamUrl } = data;
console.log("Meeting Hls is Playable");
} else if (status === Constants.hlsEvents.HLS_STOPPING) {
console.log("Meeting Hls is stopping");
} else if (status === Constants.hlsEvents.HLS_STOPPED) {
console.log("Meeting Hls is stopped");
} else {
//
}

}

const {
meetingId
...
} = useMeeting({
onHlsStateChanged,
...
});
